Okay, okay, yes, I forgot to update yesterday. Sorry. ‘Twas in a strange haze at work, like somebody had cast a hex on me. My mind was fogged up. Here’s what I’d intended to post yesterday: I distrust technology predictions. But I’m going to make one. How long does it take a really major technological change to occur? I’m talking about changes on the scale of the transition from mainframes to PCs, or the ubiquity […]

Eh. I wrote a little entry about the Mac, but don’t feel like posting it yet. Now’s not the day. Part of the problem is the rain outside. My world is drenched, rain pouring from the sky in amounts that would surprise Noah. And, of course, I have to be at work today. But days like this were made for a steaming cup of tea, a good book, and a comfortable couch. I just can’t get […]

How much do I know of my limits? I’ve been asking myself this question often over the past few days. Last weekend tired me so much that I’m doing practically nothing creative. I realized that I don’t have a strong sense of how creative I can be, of how long I can sustain a creative spell before tiring out. It seems to me that it’s rather silly of me […]

So. I saw Kill Bill on Saturday. I really enjoyed it, though it’s certainly not for everyone. It’s hyper-violent in a way that parodies violent films. It’s a hyper-violent kung fu film that actually has the budget to pull off the hyperviolence that this sort of film usually doesn’t have the money to portray. It’s basically a set of fight sequences, strung together with a clouded backstory of revenge. It’s a very cool […]

Last weekend has knocked me for a loop; I kept away from small group last night and rested. Which meant watching a lot of good anime. Particularly, His and Hers Cirumstances, which remains one of my favorite anime series of all time. It’s a beautiful portrait of two high-schoolers dealing with life and love. Which sounds trite, but this is perhaps the least trite series I’ve ever seen. This […]

Okay, I just checked my headlines, and came across this bit of hilarity. Dave Fester, Microsof’t Windows Digital Media Division General Manager, says: Unless Apple decides to make radical changes to their service model, a Windows-based version of iTunes will still remain a closed system, where iPod owners cannot access content from other services. Additionally, users of iTunes are limited to music from Apple’s Music Store. […]

Behold! The script and storyboard for matrix experiments lain are now online! Witness my cheesy drawing sk1llz. I’m tired, and I have a long weekend ahead of me, so I’m a bit dispirited. Saturday: Baking (in preparation for the week; I need to make something heavy-duty so I have leftovers over the course of the week; otherwise I have even less time than usual), then out to see Kill Bill with a friend, then an evening with […]

“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting, and autumn a mosaic of them all. “ — Stanley Horowitz Tuesday night, I finished the storyboard for my short anime parody. My, that’s a good feeling. It’s the first step on the path of actually making real animations. It’s not going to happen unless I start somewhere. This seems as good a place to start as any. The storyboard should appear on shortly. Next, I need […]

Corporate Ethics This term seems like an oxymoron, especially these days. Enron, WorldCom, and the rest have simply shown us something we’ve really known for a long time: the corporate world suffers from a lack of ethics. Some believe that corporations don’t need ethics. Business is impersonal, as it should be. Businesses are all about work, which produces a product or a service, and why do we need […]

Wow. Where to begin? I spent Saturday at a horse race, and I wish I could upload the pictures. I’m still sorting through them, actually; I took about a hundred, and most are practically identical. I had a good time at the race, though, with my parents. We didn’t bet on any of the horses, though my Mom revealed her ability to pick ’em. Out of the five she picked, three won and another other came in second. The storyboard for the short […]
